Report Student Absence
If your child is absent from school, a doctor’s note, phone call or written excuse from the parent, is required within 48 hours of the absence. Parents may also send an email to excuse their student’s absence to DunedinMS.Absence@pcsb.org . A written excuse should include the student’s name, reason for absence, and parent telephone number. A parent may excuse 5 days in a semester. Further absences cannot be excused without a doctor’s note. Absences should be for the following reasons: student illness, family emergency, death in family, medical appointments, and religious holidays.
